The actor and dilletante talks about his new pornographic arthouse film Interior. Leather Bar and how he's challenging Hollywood's beige treatment of sex
If you're an A-list Hollywood actor you need to have a "thing"; something beyond being just really, really good looking. For George Clooney it's politics, for Leonardo DiCaprio it's saving the tigers, Gwyneth Paltrow has her quinoa muesli, and as Mark Ruffalo's Twitter reveals, he's very much invested in the anti-fracking scene. For James Franco, though, his thing appears to be, well, everything. Once you start researching the 35-year-old's recent antics, it quickly becomes clear just how bizarrely prolific he is: he's currently making five films, with six more in post-production; he's a fervent blogger, tweeter and Instagrammer; he publishes short stories and poetry, famously penning a poem to commemorate the second inauguration of President Obama back in January; he is a sometime multimedia artist, and »
The Hulk may not have performed very well in his two previous solo outings but he certainly stole the show in the Avengers. The newest interpretation of the character—played by Mark Ruffalo, under the guidance of Joss Whedon—was a green-skinned scene stealer, especially in the now-famous “Puny God” scene. Ever since the great reception for the hulking hero in the Avengers, there has been speculation about another Hulk solo movie. Now, an inside source says one is being made. The name of that source…Lou Ferrigno.
During a recent interview with Flicks & the City, Ferrigno—who played the Incredible Hulk in the 1978-1982 TV series, which co-starred Bill Bixby as Dr. Banner—spoke about the character and claimed that a solo film is on the horizon.
Ferrigno said, “They are doing a Hulk movie, »

• More on the Sundance film festival
Philip Seymour Hoffman, Anne Hathaway and Mark Ruffalo are among the marquee names set to star in films at next year's Sundance film festival, the annual celebration of indie film-making founded by Robert Redford.
Organisers, who announced a large portion of its lineup on 4 December, hinted the 2014 event will have a slightly more mature air, one perhaps befitting a festival that will celebrate its 30th year when it opens in January. "This year's lineup is reflective of film-makers wanting to tell new stories, and we're seeing a broader range of characters and ages," Trevor Groth, the director of programming, told the Hollywood Reporter. "A lot of times, the typical Sundance film-maker has a younger perspective and tells stories of what they know. »

The 2014 Sundance Film Festival is right around the corner, and the Sundance Institute has released the full line-up for the competition films that will be premiering!
This year there were 12,218 total submissions, and 117 films were accepted from 37 countries around the world. It looks like there's a lot of good selection of films this year.
The Sundance Film Festival 2014 runs from January 16th to the 26th, and the GeekTyrant team will be there to cover as many movies as we possibly can.
U.S. Dramatic Competition
The 16 films in this section are world premieres and, unless otherwise noted, are from the U.S.

Sundance Film Festival continues to be one of the most popular, and arguably one of the most important, events on the industry calendar, launching as it does some of the most prominent independent films at the start of each year.
This year will be no different, with Sundance announcing last night the initial line-up of films screening in competition, led by Song One, starring Anne Hathaway; Camp X-Ray, starring Kristen Stewart; Infinitely Polar Bear, with Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana; Joe Swanberg’s Happy Christmas, starring Anna Kendrick, Melanie Lynskey, Mark Webber, Lena Dunham, and Swanberg himself; The Skeleton Twins, with Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Luke Wilson, and Ty Burrell; Life After Beth, with Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan, and John C. Reilly; Listen Up Philip, with Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss; Whiplash, starring Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons; and many, many more.

After his show-stealing turn in The Avengers, Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner / The Incredible Hulk is set to link up with Earth's Mightiest Heroes again next year as cameras roll on Joss Whedon's hotly-anticipated 2015 sequel The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
However, with Ruffalo tied down to a six-movie deal - including the two aforementioned Avengers movies - it's surely only a matter of time before the Green Goliath gets another solo movie. There has been plenty of speculation that this could happen as part of Marvel's Phase Three, and according to Lou Ferrigno - who voices the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and of course portrayed him in the classic 70s TV series - that seems to be the plan.

The 2014 Sundance Film Festival is coming up in January and today, the Sundance Institute has named the films that will be in the U.S. and world competitions as well as Next, which is an oddly-named showcase for “Pure, bold works distinguished by an innovative, forward-thinking approach to storytelling.”
There will be 67 films competing across five different competition categories. That may sound like a lot, but that’s only the first half of the film announcements. Later on they will be announcing the remaining lineup of films being shown outside these competitions.
Overall, it’s an impressive batch of entries, with several surprises and a handful of very promising movies. Check out the full list below and let us know what you think in the comments section.

Sundance Institute announced today the films selected for the U.S. and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary Competitions and the out-of-competition section of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, January 16-26 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.
Robert Redford, President & Founder of Sundance Institute said, “That the Festival has evolved and grown as it has over the past 30 years is a credit to both our audiences and our artists, who continue to find ways to take risks and open our minds to the power of story. This year’s films and artists promise to do the same.”
For the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, 118 feature-length films were selected, representing 37 countries and 54 first-time filmmakers, including 34 in competition. These films were selected from 12,218 submissions (72 more than for 2013), including 4,057 feature-length films and 8,161 short films.

Nothing really connecting these two movies except that they both feature a bunch of actors we really, really like. So let's roll... Philip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Jenkins, Christina Hendricks and John Turturro combine Voltron forces for John Slattery's "God's Pocket." Here's the synopsis: The story of a man trying to conceal the truth about the construction “accident” that killed his stepson. Next up, Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana put on their game faces for Maya Forbes' curiously named "Infinitely Polar Bear," which as far as we can tell is neither infinite nor features polar bears. Synopsis: A manic-depressive father tries to win back his wife by taking full responsibility of their two young daughters. »

As I had predicted here, names such as Cutter Hodierne, Kat Candler, Maya Forbes, Mona Fastvold and Damien Chazelle would be among the invited guests at the ’14 edition of the Sundance Film Festival. It was such a strong year that even some items that I thought would be dark horse/long shots and might be looking at a fest berth from the sidelines are considered definite dramatic comp material, while some that was fully expecting to break the line-up have been passed up.
Horror “labeled” directors Carter Smith (Jamie Marks Is Dead) and Jim Mickle (Cold in July) broke into the line-up that is usually reserved for the newbie type of director and are coming in with perhaps different genre material. We’re glad to see Justin Simien’s Dear White People break into the 16 – it also acts as the long awaited return of Duly Noted producer Effie Brown. Actor »

The U.S. and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary Competition lineups for the 2014 Sundance Film Festival were announced today and just below I have featured pictures from the 16 films that will be competing in the U.S. Dramatic competition and they feature a lot of names you're going to recognize. The titles begin with Camp X-Ray, which stars Kristen Stewart as a guard in Guantanamo Bay, where she forms an unlikely friendship with one of the detainees. Jim Mickle made an impact earlier this year with We Are What We Are and he returns with Michael C. Hall with Cold in July. Fishing Without Nets looks to tell a story similar to that of Captain Phillips, only this time from the Somali side of things; God's Pocket is "Mad Men" star John Slattery's writing and directorial debut and he's lined up an impressive cast including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Jenkins, »
